I Try Not to Cry

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 99 People

    A Thought?

     Sometimes... it seems like the people that try not to cry are the ones in need of a really good cry. You can't hold everything in forever. You have a breaking point. Just let it out when you can...  But what do I know? I cry all the time. :/

    " Big Girls Don't Cry "

    Each and every moment  i try  to supress my  pain, and not to cry . When i just can't withstand, i broke into tears in a place where no one can see me,, i feel no one can understand me in this world, i don't have  anyone to share my heart.

    A Family Poison!

    There was a saying, that my grandmother told my mother and she passed it to me... it was "Never let them see you sweat." That was an awful poison to pass on. Because it meant to hold in your feelings, keep smiling, and in the end it made things worse! I developed...

    How Pain Ends the Day

    It's Impossible to Stop.

    As a child I never cried. Then I cried a lot. Everywhere and about everything. Several times in front of teachers. Just because my teachers would make a comment like "You have to work on this or that.". It would make me cry. Now I'm hardly ever crying again...

    Wish I Could Cry

    I am 52 and in my life i have never really been able to cry. I have had so many times when crying would have relieved some of the sadness and stress that built up in my life. People who cry probably can't even understand why I can't. It just seems I can't let go and let myself...

    I Feel Weak

    I used to cry all the time, at least everyday. I felt pathetic. After a long time I that I got sick of it and made myself stronger. Now if I get sad, I try my hardest not to let my tears fall. I feel so weak if I do. I feel like I'm turning into that sad, pathetic thing I used to...

    No Tears

    I have never been someone who was prone to tears, even as a kid I didn't really cry.  But, when I did, it was balls out, full on tears and hiccuping and runny nose. Well, when I was about seven or eight, stuff happened between me parents and it really upset me. So, I started...
